TCCE is delighted to collaborate with The British Academy on All Work, No Pay: Generation Intern. The event is part of the British academy’s current season on Inequalities.
For many young people, the internship has become the route to professional work. A chance to gain valuable work experience particularly in the arts and creative industries, they help young people to stand out in a growing graduate labour pool. Yet the work is temporary, largely unregulated and often unpaid, leading critics to question whether the practice is exploitative. How might we envisage new models for internship culture, what might they look like, who could benefit and what potential might be realised as a result?
